Pool and snooker fans have been left lauding the 'most unbelievable fluke ever' after a player managed to roll a ball down two sides of a table and into a pocket.
A video was posted by the @ILoveSnooker_ account on Twitter, with the venue seemingly a pub with an amateur table. And lining up a pot was a player dressed in everyday clothes.
There was no indication of the incredible footage to come as he lined up over the white ball, which was positioned near the top cushion. He appeared to be lining up a complex long a pot into the bottom left cushion.

What followed defied belief. The pot missed comfortably, but was hit with such venom that the ball bounded back down the table towards the top left cushion instead – taking a jump up as it collided with the side.
The ball then proceeded to roll down the whole left hand side of the table rail, but then went off at a right angle as it reached the corner. It then rolled across the bottom rail before somehow nestling in the bottom right.
The account captioned the video: "I think this is the most unbelievable fluke I have ever seen," while @PoolSharkClub added: "1 in a billion shot." @ChrisBillam joked: "How do you know he didn't mean to do that?"
@William411960 even questioned the legitimacy of the footage: "Is this some sort of a trick photography?" he asked. "If it isn't is a brilliant fluke." @TylerParkinso14 referenced snooker trick shot legend John Virgo by adding: "This one would give JV a heart attack."

The shot comes just a month after pool star Chris Melling lived up to his 'Magician' nickname by pulling off an incredible shot as well, although this wasn't considered a fluke. In an Ultimate Pool Champions League match, Melling had left himself in trouble after missing a cannon on the 8 ball.
But he got himself out of the hole as he banked his final red off three cushions to seal victory. His effort even drew praise from snooker star Shaun Murphy, himself dubbed 'The Magician'.
